He said the planning of the 2017 budget was also based on the ERGP.

Osibanjo noted that empowerment of Nigerians is at the heart the Buhari’s signature Social Investment Programmed

“It is an investment in education and educating large numbers of people in a short time, it’s a radical thing to make that kind of serious investment in education, ” referring to the N-Power scheme’s training component for young graduates, and non graduates in artisanal and industrial middle-level skills. He also referred to the planned N100,000 supporting grants to students of higher institutions in Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths, STEM.
